Whose Bed Have YOUR Boots Been Under?

Whose Bed Have YOUR Boots Been Under?

This week’s theme for Song Lyrics Sunday is all about clothing, thanks to Jim at An Unique Title For Me. I first thought about using the song “Boogie Woogie Dancing Shoes” for this week’s prompt. But, I used that already used it for another one earlier this year. Drats! Then, I thought about using Sisqo’s “Thong Song”, which was the hottest song when I graduated from elementary school. However, the lyrics are a little too risque, don’t you think? I might have some readers left speechless and confusion, especially when watching the music video.

So, I had a conundrum: where can I find a song about clothing that not many know about. Then I stumbled on today’s songs in a song list: “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?”.

Robert John "Mutt" Lange

Where Did Those Boots Go

“Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?” is a typical country song about a woman confronting her lover to confess about his affairs. The lyrics were written by Twain and then-husband Robert John “Mutt” Lange. The title of the song is sort of ironic in the sense that about 13 years it got released, Twain asked Lange: Whose Bed Have YOUR Boots Been Under? The two divorced because Lange was caught cheating with Twain’s best friend Marie-Anne Thiébaud. And then, Twain remarried her best friend’s ex-husband afterward. Aye, the drama!

The 1995 single “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?” was the lead single for Shania Twain’s second album The Woman in Me. I really didn’t know Shania until I heard “You’re Still the One” in 1998. So, I am not in all familiar with The Woman in Me. I probably heard one of the songs, “No One Needs to Know”, when I watched Twister when it first came out, but I didn’t recognize it be Shania’s at that time. However, I like Twain’s music a lot, especially from the albums Come on Over and Up!. If I had to choose, “Up!” is my favorite song from the Candian country star.

The Heart of 90s Country

Shania Twain in the 1990s

I am no expert on country music, “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?” is one of that pure 90 country songs. After Twain opens ups the song, the instrumentation is kicked up with a powerful fiddle solo. Within the first minute of the song, you can hear many classic elements of country music: the slide guitar, the vocal twang, the simple three-chord progression, and the piano chords played in a higher range.

I always love Shania’s vocals as they are velvety and quite strong. Her vocals in this song are more country-influenced as they have the country twang. But, it doesn’t hinder Twain’s talented vocals as she executes how she wants to sing the song flawlessly.

The Lyrics Behind “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?”

Whose bed have your boots been under?

Whose bed have your boots been under?
And whose heart did you steal I wonder?
This time did it feel like thunder, baby?
Whose bed have your boots been under?

Don’t look so lonely
Don’t act so blue
I know I’m not the only
Girl you run to
I know about Lolita
Your little Spanish flame
I’ve seen you around with Rita
The redhead down the lane

Whose bed have your boots been under?
And whose heart did you steal I wonder?
This time did it feel like thunder, baby?
And who did you run to?
And whose lips have you been kissin’?
And whose ear did you make a wish in?
Is she the one that you’ve been missin’, baby?
Well whose bed have your boots been under?

I heard you’ve been sneakin’
Around with Jill
And what about that weekend
With Beverly Hill
And I’ve seen you walkin’
With long legs Louise
And you weren’t just talkin’
Last night with Denise

Whose bed have your boots been under?
And whose heart did you steal I wonder?
This time did it feel like thunder, baby?
And who did you run to?
And whose lips have you been kissin’?
And whose ear did you make a wish in?
Is she the one that you’ve been missin’, baby?
Well whose bed have your boots been under?

Come on boots…

So next time you’re lonely
Don’t call on me
Try the operator
Maybe she’ll be free

Whose bed have your boots been under?
And whose heart did you steal I wonder?
This time did it feel like thunder, baby?
And who did you run to?
And whose lips have you been kissin’?
And whose ear did you make a wish in?
Is she the one that you’ve been missin’, baby?
Well whose bed have your boots been under?
I wanna know whose bed, baby
Whoa baby, tell me
Whose bed, yes I wanna know
You better start talkin’
Or you better start walkin’…
